Loom knit scarf "Smores"

My daughter was making something with this yarn but just abandoned it. I saved it and made a huge ball of yarn. I am making a long scarf and I won't stop till it's all gone. I want to get rid of all this scrappy yarn I have. Loom knitting on Martha's loom.

Loom knitted scarf and some other things...

I can't even remember when I started this project. I promised myself to try and finish all these WIPS that I have lingering in knitting bags. I started to add fringe, but changed my mind. It looks so much nicer for a boy without the fringe.
Here is number 7 block for the quilt sampler I am doing with the quilter's class. It's called "Useless Bay". I was able to do all of the rotary cutting for this block by myself.
Mug Cozy What is all the hoopla about mug cozies. I can make a cozy for almost everything in my cabinet. Easy.

I found a Quilting Group!

Reading the newspaper is so important. I stumbled on a free quilting workshop for Breast Cancer awareness. I called right away to reserve my seat. After years of wanting to learn how to quilt I finally got my shot. It was an amazing day for me and all of the rest of the ladies that attended. When the teacher showed us what we were going to do, I said, "No way can I do that." After weeks of attending, I finished my first quilt. So sad to see it ending, but realized that there were more classes to come. So saving my little money here and there I am still quilting for four months every Saturday. No, I have not abandoned my knitting and crocheting or loom knitting, still doing it but adding a new love called quilting. Now I have started a new lap quilt for my mom. I think she is going to love it once its done. I have so many other things I wish to chat about, but I need to add some fresh and news links to my blog and upload some new pics. My first quilt(pieced by me,and long-armed quilted by Karoline)
